How to Plan a Next Level Equestrian Wedding

Are you a horse lover so much so that you’d love to include a steed (maybe even your own steed!) into your wedding? If you’re nodding your head, then read on because we got you right here.

Equestrian Wedding Overlook

The ultimate country wedding is the best way to describe it. Country vibes can be everywhere from the tones in the bouquet to the shoes (excuse us — boots!) you wear.

Equestrian weddings can be elopement-style with close family and friends, a guest count of about ten perhaps, mounted on steed. Or it can be a full, blown out wedding affair, where only you and your sweetie are mounted on steeds (picture-perfect, if you ask us!) for your couple’s portrait session.

Wedding Venues and Vendors for Your Equestrian Wedding

Did you know there are literally venues and vendors that are dedicated equestrian wedding vendors? Pretty cool, right? For instance, if you’re looking to find a photographer for your big day, then you should check out their website and social medias, where they’ll often note that they’re equestrian photographers. Indeed, we love that idea, because it means that they’re sort of pros when it comes to the subject.

Now for that equestrian setting, you’ll probably want a farm or ranch as the venue for your wedding. Well, there’s just so many to choose from! Some may even have an equestrian boarding facility on property, which makes for the perfect rustic wedding theme.

Personalizing an Equestrian Wedding

The ideas are limitless, but here are a few of our favorites:

  • Add a leather sash to the wedding gown
  • Choose boots instead
  • Add a hat to your ensemble
  • Wooden horse cake topper
  • Fall-inspired color scheme
  • Vintage rentals


Countryside weddings are romantic and beautiful, and equestrian weddings have an added flair that couples looking for homestead elegance will be drawn to.
